KUTV — The following information was provided by City Academy Charter High School.
City Academy Charter High School students have been completing service-learning internship projects as a part of their graduation requirements.
On Thursday, April 21st, from 4:00 pm until 5:30 pm, students will display something that was personally meaningful to them during their internship. The public is welcome to attend this event.
City Academy students have served and learned with 150 different organizations up to date.
A service-learning internship is much more than just volunteering for something or someone. It is both service and academic research centered around issues the student cares about.
City Academy students choose internships from one of five categories: Human, Animal, Environmental, Civic, and Social Issues.
Each student selects an organization outside their family or school, where they would like to do their service-learning.
While working with Executive Director Sonia Woodbury, they come up with one or two questions that they feel are important. At the end of the service, they are required to answer those questions.
Executive Director Sonia Woodbury said “This event is something we look forward to each year. To witness the passion that our students have at the end of serving is just an incredible thing to be part of. Their passion increases and they realize that serving and caring for others, is important in one’s life. I couldn’t be more thrilled to honor them at this event.”
This event is in honor of Global Youth Service Days, and the exhibition display is conducted each year.
